Rag Radio 2013-12-06 - Award-Winning Fiction Writer Daniel Chacón, Author of 'Hotel Juarez'


Published December 6, 2013


Daniel Chacón is author of "Hotel Juárez: Stories, Rooms, and Loops" (2013). His collection of short stories, "Unending Rooms," won the 2008 Hudson Prize. He has also won The American Book Award, a Chris Isherwood Foundation Grant, and the Peter and Jean de Main Emerging Writers Award. Chacón teaches creative writing at the University of Texas at El Paso.

Chacón also has a novel, "and the shadows took him," and another collection of stories called "Chicano Chicanery." He co-edited "The Last Supper of Chicano Heroes: The Selected Work of José Anontio Burciaga" and is editor of "Colón-ization: The Posthumous Poems of Andrés Montoya," forthcoming in 2014 from Bilingual Press and the Institute for Latino Studies at Notre Dame. His fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and literary journals. Chacón also has a literary radio show called Words on a Wire which he co-hosts with Benjamin Alire Sánez on KTEP-FM in El Paso.

Publisher's Weekly wrote about Hotel Juarez: "Linked but never repetitive, these beautiful stories are fresh, with just enough Borges-ian magic to make them feel extraordinary... The stories are rooms, images that you can walk into, taking the reader to wherever Chacón wants him to go."
